The purpose of this study is to determine whether a new technique of radiotherapy for breast cancer (helical tomotherapy) can induce cardiac toxicity that would be detected in the first two years after treatment. Screening of subclinical cardiac lesions with non-invasive cardiac imaging techniques combined with measures of circulating biomarkers of cardiac tissue lesions and coronary lesions would allow assessing radiation-induced cardiac toxicity at an early stage.
REBECCA study will consist in a monocentric prospective cohort that will include 120 women volunteers treated with adjuvant tomotherapy for breast cancer in the Institut Regaud Claudius-Toulouse (ICR) and followed for 2 years after radiotherapy.
In summary, women aged between 40 and 70 years, surgically treated at ICR for breast cancer and for whom adjuvant radiotherapy with tomotherapy is indicated, with no indication of chemotherapy will be eligible for the study.

Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).
Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.
Radiotherapy given to augment some other form of treatment such as surgery or chemotherapy. Adjuvant radiotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.
An orally administered anthracycline antineoplastic. The compound has shown activity against breast cancer, lymphomas and leukemias, together with the potential for reduced cardiac toxicity.
A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)
